Coming down to the wire!

Hey all.

Another quick update from your Programming puppy. Anthrocon is coming up fast! Less than 40 days away! Can you believe it?!?!

Well, I've received quite a number of panel requests in the last week with folks wanting to know if it's too late to get a panel in the schedule.

Short answer is: It's not too late. I'm still accepting panel requests. Now here's the caveat. Many popular timeslots are filled. So in the form that I send anyone, I am still asking folks to indicate a preferred time/day, but I can't promise that I can get everyone the exact timeslot they want. (I'll do my aabsolute best though!)

So..if you want to contribute to Anthrocon programming, don't be shy! We still have places available for many panels and SIGs! Some really interesting and exciting ones have come in recently.

Some things you can look forward to:

Dealers Room: Final Deadlines Approaching!

Hidey-ho, good neighbors, and a fine Wednesday morning to you.

Let's get this out of the way quick: there are a number of deadlines coming up very quickly, and two important ones are for Dealers.

May 15: this is the very very very very very last day to request a cancellation and recieve a 50% refund. This is TOMORROW for those playing at home. Any cancellation request received on May 16 or later will be processed, but no refund can be issued.

May 25: this is the last day we will accept adjustments to your application. This is anything on your application, including Dealer's Assistants, dealership names, requests for power or wall space, re-assignment requests, anything. With exceptions granted for situations beyond the control of mortal men and women and miscellany, the books will shut that day and the staff will do our urgent last-ditch power scanning.
